Construction of the CCC

After 5 years of planning and construction, we finally opened our Cultural Community Center on October 16th, 2010. Press, universities, state agencies, NGO’s, nearby communities and politicians all attended our grand opening ceremony. The celebration consisted of dance performances, children’s theatrics, traditional Maya folklore stories, and a customary Maya meal was prepared for all.

Constructing our beautiful CCC was a joint effort from local community members and volunteers groups to make our dream a reality. Now, we in Yaxunah have a place to share our Maya heritage with visitors for years to come.
